The third album from Broken Thoughts, “Realign”, represents Chinese musician Keju Luo’s most straightforward and loop-driven work so far. With a less-is-more approach and a focus on the improvement of sound, he continues to explore the intersection of cinematic soundscapes, industrial rhythm structures and IDM style noises and glitches.

Materials from the last two years were “realigned” within a couple of weeks to forge the 7 tracks, which range from ritualistic drones to intense, almost dancy beats. The unique blend of genres makes “Realign” an intriguing release for any open-minded listener.

"Glass breaks, static hisses, bass rumbles. All of this occurs within a lattice of beats. This is music for dark moods, menacing yet intelligent: the worst kind of threat."
---- A Closer Listen (

"Broken Thoughts' near-flawless technique and sound design yields a stunning suite of themes and atmospheres."
---- I Die: You Die (

"A captivating dark-electronic album that settles on sparse drone landscapes, sandblasted post-industrial fissures and metamorphic glitch activity."
---- Igloo Magazine (

"You can’t rush this stuff. You have to give it head space, spend time with it. Absorb it."
---- Echoes and Dust (

"Realign is awakening itself, with life-force crystallising between the regulatory beeps and whirrs of hydraulic limb, outstretching into an ominous unknown."
---- ATTN:Magazine (

"I think you will agree this album ranks among the best of the current adventurous electronic music."
---- Ambient Blog (

"Realign is from start to finish overflowing with intelligence, mastery and wit."
---- Destroy//Exist (
